Who let the bison out?

Email

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) -- The National Park Service is trying to find out who opened a gate at a bison capture facility near Gardiner that allowed 10 to 15 bison to escape and that have not been located.

Authorities tell the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that the bison escaped March 10. The bison tested positive for exposure to brucellosis and were being held at the Stephens Creek capture facility to prevent them from roaming toward ranches where they might transmit the disease to cattle.
